We can start at any time after 10am and before 2.30pm (winter) and 4:00pm (summer). For safety reasons (and its more fun while you can see) we usually recommend finishing your race prior to the sun setting if possible.

We strongly recommend that teams wear comfortable clothing & footwear. Our courses cover approximately 3-6kms each so we encourage people to be comfortable. We also recommend that teams leave handbags & personal items at their office as we are unable to leave them at the start of the race.

ABSOLUTELY!

We love it (and encourage it) teams to dress up. We generally use colours to determine the different teams, we would be happy to send through the list of colours for you race prior to your start so you can tell the teams the colours to dress up in.

We cater for all sized groups, from 8 people to 300+ people….in fact why stop there….

To date we have designed & hosted the Amazing Race for groups well over 300 people. So, no matter what group size you have get in touch & we we design the perfect team bonding event.

The Amazing Race is designed for all walks of life to complete, so you don’t need to be an Olympic athlete to complete our courses. Most of our courses are approximately 5-7kms in total, and are broken up with checkpoints. So as long as you can comfortably walk then you can complete the Amazing Race!

During our zoom sessions, we do get to know your team as much as possible, including their general fitness levels so we can plan out the perfect Amazing Race to make sure everyone is comfortable & most importantly enjoys their team building experience.

Of course! At Tailored Team Building we understand that each team is different, therefore every Amazing Race is different. We can completely customise an Amazing Race for your team, including the start & finish locations. We are also able to brief the teams in your office / conference centre if you prefer.

We totally understand that mother nature is quite unpredictable! In most cases, in light rain we can still continue with the Amazing Race & have everyone bring along an umbrella / light rain jacket. However, if this doesn’t suit your team then we do have a couple of options;

  1. We can look at postponing your Amazing Race event to another suitable date
  2. We can try & secure a suitable indoor venue (subject to availability of course) & host a Game Show style event instead

Safety of participants is of paramount importance. Our hosts carry compact first aid kits. We also ask the teams to stay together at all times and take care of each other.

All checkpoints are hosted by us and teams have a mobile number for any problems that arise. Before heading off, our hosts ask for a contact number for each team.

You book via a confirmation email with your chosen event, date, numbers, venue and timing included, plus your company details for invoicing purposes.
